The steady increase in use of online educational tools and services has led to a large amount of educational video materials made available for students to watch. Finding the right video content is usually supported by the overarching learning management system and its user interface that organizes various video items by course, categories and weeks, and makes them searchable. However, once a wanted video is found, students are often left without further guidance as to what parts in that video…

Leveraging Video Interaction Data and Content Analysis to Improve Video Learning

This work combines click-level interaction data, such as pausing, resuming, or navigating between points in the video, and video content analysis, to analyze peaks in viewership and student activity.

Finding Video-watching Behavior Patterns in a Flipped CS1 Course

How regular video watching can be a key learning strategy for some but not all students in a flipped CS1 course is discussed, where some students can achieve good learning outcomes with minimal watching of the course videos.

Attention Based Video Summaries of Live Online Zoom Classes

A system developed to help University students get more from their online lectures, tutorials, laboratory and other live sessions by logging their attention levels on their laptops during live Zoom sessions and providing them with personalised video summaries of those live sessions.

How Do In-video Interactions Reflect Perceived Video Difficulty?

It is found that speed decreases, frequent and long pauses, infrequent seeks with high amount of skipping and re-watching indicate higher level of video difficulty.

Instructors Desire Student Activity, Literacy, and Video Quality Analytics to Improve Video-based Blended Courses

This paper investigated instructors' requirements from video analytics and found three categories of information that instructors want to inform their teaching that provide the foundations and design implications for instructor-centric educational video analytics interfaces.

How video production affects student engagement: an empirical study of MOOC videos

The largest-scale study of video engagement to date is presented, using data from 6.9 million video watching sessions across four courses on the edX MOOC platform, finding that shorter videos are much more engaging, that informal talking-head videos are more engage, and that Khan-style tablet drawings are more engaging.

A System for Event-Based Film Browsing

A film browsing interface, termed the MovieBrowser, is described, which allows users to easily locate specific portions of movies, as well as to obtain an understanding of the filming being perused.

IntelliEye: Enhancing MOOC Learners' Video Watching Experience through Real-Time Attention Tracking

A privacy-aware system (IntelliEye) that makes use of learners' Webcam feeds to determine---in real-time---when they no longer pay attention to the lecture videos and makes learners aware of their attention loss via visual and auditory cues is designed.

MOOC Video Interaction Patterns: What Do They Tell Us?

This paper reports a large-scale analysis of in-video interactions, categorizing the video behaviors into patterns by employing a clustering methodology, based on the available types of interactions, namely, pausing, forward and backward seeking and speed changing.

Are you with me? Measurement of Learners’ Video-Watching Attention with Eye Tracking

Although the majority of the time participants followed the instructor’s dialogues, their behaviour of looking-ahead, looking-behind or looking-outside differed by their prior knowledge, which opens the possibility of using eye-tracking to measure learners’ video-watching attention patterns and examine factors that can influence their attention, thereby helping instructors to design effective learning materials.
